We're looking for janitors (low-level farmhands) and people with Linux or web dev experience.

If you're interested in helping out, introduce yourself ITT and write a few sentences about how you can help. If we're interested, we'll contact you through a temporary ban message.

Would definitely be interested in being a janitor. I spend too much time on here, night as well be slightly productive with it.

No. 13437

Any janitor positions available? Work from home so always have heaps of spare time and am constantly browsing through threads.

No. 13450

Interested in being a janitor as well if you guys need anymore of them. I spend an alarming amount of my day refreshing the boards and lurking. Particularly on /snow/ and /ot/ I feel like I would be most familiar with board culture.

How many users?

I feel like you might be taking advantage of the Anonymous feature of image boards by not having any indication of actual user activity.
There's no way to know if you're replying to one crazy pretending to be multiple people, or if there is actually any interest in a thread.

Considering the entire purpose of this site is to identify autistic internet antics, perhaps including a 4chan like replies/images/posters would be beneficial to certain threads. Or even a user id.

Also ps: finding threads here sucks it's so difficult.

Excuse my autism, but I've noticed posters sometimes seem to mix up the following terms. I see this on other websites, too. This is understandable, since the terms are vague and not widely known.

These are subjective to some degree, but here is how I personally define them.


This is a general term for deceptive posting. It can mean the following things:

- Taking on more than one persona in a thread to make it seem like your view has wider support than it actually does. This is also called sockpuppeting. May involve replying to your own posts agreeing with yourself, or significantly changing writing style to make it seem like a different person is also giving similar positive or negative remarks. Particularly dedicated samefags may try to use a different IP address as well.

- Making multiple posts back-to-back, without obvious indication they were all made by you. This is not always deceptive, though is often annoying.

- May also apply to general false or omitted self-identification. For example, if the subject of a /pt/ thread started secretly and anonymously posting in her own thread to disagree with people or defend herself, this may also be called samefagging. There may be a better term for this, but if there is, I'm not yet aware of it.


Posting about yourself in any way, whether anonymous or self-identifying. For example: posting a picture of yourself, linking to your own profiles, giving excessive details about your life, etc. Self-posts are completely acceptable in some threads and some contexts, but they usually are frowned upon otherwise. You shouldn't try to make yourself stand out on an anonymous board. Valid spellings also include self posting and selfposting.

Vendetta / vendettafag / vendetta-posting

Posting about someone as if you are a random person who happens to dislike them, when in reality you have some sort of personal connection or grudge. Often involves samefagging. Generally has no relation to self-posting, except in cases of self-victimization. In cases where you present the chan with an implicit or explicit "call to action", to further your vendetta, this is also called a personal army (PA) request. It often involves misleading or deceptive information.

An example of a vendetta post would be arguing with a girl on social media, and later posting a thread calling her a whore. Asking people to send things to her parents, or falsely claiming she's violated some site's terms of service and requesting people report her, or including her address and phone number in the post, would be a vendetta post as well as a personal army request.

Sage goes in the email field and keeps your post from bumping the topic. You use it when you have no milk to contribute. See #2 in this https://lolcow.farm/info

No. 10147

What does “been put to pasture” mean? I’m assuming a ban but for how long? Are there other terms for different lengths of bans?

No. 10841

The length of the ban varies. The wording of the redtext has nothing to do with the length. Sometimes the redtext tells what the ban is for (blogpost, nitpicking, self post, etc).

Also: Not all bans are redtexted.

why is everyone here so obsessed with saging? this board is slow enough without everyone saging every reply lol

No. 11756

For the drama boards such as /pt/, /snow/ and /w/ (but especially /pt/) it's kind of important to sage because users can hide saged replies and only read the actual milk/info that's in the thread. Saging on other boards isn't really important but I do it out of habit. Hope that answers your question

Anyone ignoring admin message in the onision thread is getting a red-texted ban. We're not repeating ourselves.

No. 11179

No new rules have been created but we're cracking down on politics and racebait.
All discussion of race whether positive or negative is banned from /ot/ and /m/. Repeat offenders may be permabanned from these boards.

The USA thread is getting locked for violating the agreement that politics may be only discussed in pink-pill and gender critical.

No. 11242

After much discussion within the staff team, we have decided to lock the radfem thread. Please post in gender critical instead for the time being.

In the future, other problematic threads may be locked as well.

I have been ambiguous about my gender up until now, but to prevent confusion, I'd just like to inform everyone that I'm male. (Every other staff member is female.)

I prefer to preserve my anonymity as much as possible, but it feels wrong when someone assumes I'm female and to not deny it, so I think it is best to let everyone know.

No surprises here. See the idiotic Next fiasco forming on twitter. The two imbeciles are going to sue each other like idiots they are in this matter. The worst aspect is that the user base has to carry the can for this failure and the meta debt 8chan has amassed.

I swear this isn't like an ip grabber or something, and definitely use a vpn if you go to the website (I did), but apparently it's run by the same people with the petition to take down lolcow, gg, and kiwifarms lmao, supposedly building dossiers of lolcow posters and mods/admins.

I know the milk is drying up in the Onision thread but anons have taken that opportunity to clog it up with Lainey talk and it’s annoying as hell.

She’s boring and it’s the same stuff that’s been talked about for months. Ew, she’s ugly. She’ll never transition. She’s so boring no wonder Greg hates her. Greg will leave her if she gets top surgery.

I can’t take one more boring repetitive post about her.

No. 11423

The Onision thread is kind of out of control. Half.. ok maybe that's a bit much… a quarter of the posts in there are non-contributory and should never have been made. ie. no one gives a fuck on how all this milk is making you feel, speculation without reasoning or argumentation, newfags bringing up OLD ASS topics that have been done to death (what kind of military discharge. credit to the oldfags who didn't beat that horse to death… again), posts that only reference other posts in the same thread that don't contribute. Can you just like wag your finger at them or something?

No. 11667

Hi mods and admin.

I have a suggestion. The onision thread sometimes gets bait and spam from people trying post fake screenshots and updates.

Would it be an idea to have a locked "verified content" thread that contains only images and updates that have been verified to be true and legit, and maybe with a level of scrutiny so only the most interesting stuff gets archived?
This way, people can easily look up stuff, without having to risk taking bait, or us unknowingly feeding trolls. If its too much work, then whatever. It's just a suggestion. But I think it would help against the motivation to keep trolling the thread, as there's no way (hopefully) that troll content could get inside a verified thread.
